The whole series needs to be adapted really, but obviously The Final Empire would be the starting point. Can you imagine how this would look on a giant cinema screen? Vin and Kelsier flying around everywhere, the landscape, the mists, all of your favourite characters. From what I’ve heard, the movie rights were bought previously but then returned after some time, so they’re up for grabs again. Hopefully with the steadily increasing popularity of Brandon Sanderson, someone will pick them up again and actually adapt them. I’d be more than okay with either a TV series or a set of movies, as long as they remained faithful to the books.
I love stories about World War II and I think this would be a wonderful addition to the genre. A lot of the movies about WWII focus on the male soldiers or pilots, either British, American, or German, whereas Code Name Verity is about two amazing women. Their friendship is one of the most beautiful things out there, and I just know that any potential movie would destroy my soul.
Greek mythology, check. Epic love, check. Two gay men, check. Tears, CHECK. I think that’s a pretty decent summary if you ask me. The Song of Achilles is the story of Patroclus and his best friend/lover, Achilles. And yes, it’s a retelling of The Iliad. It’s epic, and nothing like Brad Pitt’s Troy, which was disappointing and quite honestly quite offensive given the source text.
Can somebody please turn this book series into a TV show? I would absolutely devour the futuristic, sci-fi setting, and the huge cast of characters. And everybody is loving fairytale retellings at the moment, right? I want to see Cinder and Scarlet and Captain Thorne on screen, battling against the evil Lunar Queen and trying to save the world. I would also be able to ship Cinder/Thorne full throttle and there would be GIFs. All the GIFs.
I think that’s it for this post because it’s making me feel a weird mix of excitement and frustration! Which books would you like to be adapted? Let me know in the comments below.
